is a Monster
and an Animal
and a Guest Monster

Slingers are Animals. These spear throwing furries can be dangerous, in part due to a bug in the game that prevents throw javelins from ever striking any sort of player minion or merc (although, this only seems to apply to the Slingers in act 5). Characters accustomed to standing safely behind a wall of minions need to be careful when facing teh javelin kitteh.

Night Slingers are notable for the fact that they hurl poison potions, rather than javelins. These can deal very long-lasting damage on hell difficulty, and the habit of all types of Slingers to run out of melee range makes these cats annoying for most melee characters.

Slingers also appear as Guest Monsters. In this case, they appear in three areas and have very different attacks and resistances in each, so are listed separately when necessary.

  • All values are listed by difficulty level: Normal / Nightmare / Hell.


Statistics[edit]

  • The TC/Rune drops listed are the highest Treasure Class/Rune Group a normal monster of that type can drop.
    • TC Champions and Bosses can sometimes drop from the next higher group.
    • The max TC/Rune possible may depend on which level a monster spawns in, and can be lower than the maximum. See the item calculators to ascertain precisely what a monster from a given area can drop.

Offence[edit]

Night Slingers throw poison potions; Spear Cats in the Dry Hills throw exploding potions; Spear Cats in the Halls of the Dead throw javelins; the other two kinds throw javelins. Javelins will hit characters, but not minions or mercs, so players must be careful not to position themselves directly behind their tanks.

  • Guest Monster Slingers always add elemental damage to their javelins.

Defences[edit]

  • Regen Rate tells what % of a monster's hit points are recovered per second. Standard is 1.2/sec.
  • Blocking tells what % of successful, blockable attacks will not damage the monster. Monsters need not carry a shield to block.
  • Drain Effectiveness tells what % of a character's mana and life steal apply to that monster. 100 is all, 0 is none.
  • Chill Effectiveness tells what % of a character's cold length applies to the monster. 100 is all, 0 is no freeze/chill at all.

Resistances[edit]

  • Resistances over 99% are listed as immunities and monsters will take no damage from that type of attack.
  • Immunities can be "broken" by skills that lower resistance, if the value drops below 99%. See the Resistances page for more details.
